Yes you can switch steering wheels, the wood grain is pricy. disconect the battery, wait 5min. remove caps from side of steering wheel. remove torx bolts from air bag assy. Remove wires from air bag. Place air bag upsode down in passenger seat. Make sure steering wheel is straight, remove 19mm nut and remove steering wheel.

SOURCE: 1999 Lexus ES300 Steering wheel make groaning noise

Hi
If the groaning sound is still happening, you are probably low on power steering fluid. I suggest starting there. Remove the cap and check the dipstick attached to the cap. The reason the sound would go away at high speeds is that you don't turn the wheel as sharply at higher speeds so the pump is not trying to pump air ( that's the groaning sound ).
If you are low on PS fluid, fill it but check for leaks for a while. Look under the car in the morning for fluid. If you spot a leak, take it back to whomever replaced the hose and have them fix it.

As far as the engine light goes, first make sure the gas cap is on properly, meaning all the way. Turn it till you hear it click several times. If that is all it was, the light should go off after 20-30 miles or so. If it stays on, try changing the gas cap. That is probably one of the cheapest routes to go.
Good luck

Yes it would be perfectly ok to disegauge the auto switch to keep it from moving again. It needs a tilt motor replaced . not a easy job.

Will a power steering pump off a 98 lexus es300 work for a 98 lexus ls400?


best ask a steering specialist shop as the engine identification shows a es300 as a 1mz-fe (3.0 ltr) and a ls400 as a 1uz-fe (4.0 ltr)
there may be mounting differences between the engines

Squeaky steering column


These squeaks usually are from the steering wheel rubbing the steering column bezel. You can spray some armor all around the back of the steering wheel, this will take care of the noise for some time. Add more as necessary.

How do i replace the current multifunction steering wheels to halfwooden steering wheels with the same setup


There is an airbag in your steering wheel . This should only be done by a professional or with your battery disconnected and VERY clear instructions.
You may find a wood grain wheel on line or at a wrecker however there are two types and shades of wood, maple for tan interior, walnut for black or gray interior.
A used wooden wheel may have additional switch positions for bluetooth which would not mate with your cars wiring.

My power streeing pump is making noise , however there is fluild in it, but it leaks from the cap on the resovir . Is the pump bad or something eles is wrong.. the streeing wheel feels fine... tx


power steering fluid loses viscosity and usefulness over time- I recomend replacing the power steering fluid, and using Lucas brand power steering stop leak, I swear by that stuff, My old caprice was losing all the power steering fluid EVERY single day! 2 truck size bottles of that gunk from lucas and it worked fine for over a year not so much as a drop. It is also over compressing in the sump, either too much or its foaming cause its broke down.

Get some new fluid in there, top it up with Lucas, and have a nice day!

Your car has front disc brakes, the disc's are running out of true, as u apply the brake this causes the steering wheel to shake, the higher the speed the more u feel this, the solution is to have the front brake disc's machined true again on a brake lathe or if they are to thin replace them.

Open the gear motor on the left hand side of the telelscopic assembly. Take the plate off held by 4 philips screws. Using a 10mm socket, remove the bolt holding the platic gear. Remove plastic gear and insert the reverse way. Over the years, one side of the gears get worn out.
